Below is my experience with Tysarbri so far. I was diagnosed with MS on the 1st of February 2013
I started on Tysabri on the 25th of September 2013 and have not looked back.
I diagnosed on the 1st of February 2013 and my first treatment was Rebief. Unfortunately it was not the treatment for me as it was not working and I was getting some bad side effects even after 6months. On my 6month check-up I was told it was time to give it up and try something new. I found this to be scary as hell after everything I had just gone through and was worried it would be the same on a new drug.
I decided to go with Tysabri and haven’t looked back. I go to the hospital for my appointment every 4th Thursday to get my infusion and it only takes 2 hours, 1 hour for the infusion and 1 hour to be watched. The only side effect I get from it is a headache after the infusion for the day but I am all good the next day. I try to return to work after my infusion and most days I can, the only time a find it hard is if I was feeling a little under the weather before the infusion.
I love my new treatment as I find it so much nice not to have to infect myself 3times a week. This was instead of having 12 needles in 4 weeks it is only 1.
Every 6-12 months I am having my JC virus check and so far it has been coming back negative.
I have just had the results back from my MRI and they have confirmed that Tysabri is working for me.
